Shadow Warriors

Utterly dedicated to the eradication of their enemies, the cloaked killers known as Shadow Warriors strike without warning, loosing a pinpoint hail of arrows before closing to finish their quarry with cold steel.

Notes: Battleline if general is SHADOWBLADES


A unit of Shadow Warriors has any number of models, each armed with a Ranger Bow and Coldsteel Blade.

SHADOW WALKER: 1 model in this unit can be a Shadow Walker. Add 1 to hit rolls for attacks made with that model’s missile weapon.


One with the Shadows: These warriors are experts at ambushes and guerilla warfare.
Instead of setting up this unit on the battlefield, you can place this unit to one side and say that it is set up in the shadows as a reserve unit. If you do so, at the end of your movement phase, you can set up this unit anywhere on the battlefield more than 9" from any enemy units. Any reserve units in the shadows that are not set up on the battlefield before the start of the fourth battle round are destroyed.

Strike Unseen: From deep cover, the Shadow Warriors draw a bead upon their quarry, bowstrings taut, arrows knocked and ready for the killing shot.
Add 1 to hit and wound rolls for attacks made with missile weapons by this unit if this unit is in cover.

Hit Roll
Roll a dice. If the roll equals or beats the attacking weapon’s To Hit characteristic, the attack scores a hit and you must make a wound roll. If not, the attack fails and the attack sequence ends. An unmodified hit roll of 1 always fails and an unmodified hit roll of 6 always hits. A hit roll cannot be modified by more than +1 or -1 (this is an exception to the principle that abilities take precedence over core rules).

Sometimes an ability will allow a single hit roll to score two or more hits. If this is the case, make all of the wound and save rolls for those hits at the same time.
13.1.1 Shooting Attacks
When a friendly unit shoots, you can make shooting attacks with any of the missile weapons the models in the unit are armed with that they are allowed to use (including missile weapons used by mounts).

The target of a shooting attack must be within a number of inches of the attacking model equal to the Range characteristic of the weapon being used to make the attack. The range must be measured to the closest visible model in the target unit (if you are unsure whether a model is visible, stoop down and take a look from behind the shooting model). Models can see through other models in their unit.

Some missile weapons have a Range characteristic with a minimum range (e.g. 6"-48"). Units wholly within the minimum range cannot be targeted with these weapons.

3.1 Reserve Units and Summoned Units
Sometimes a rule will allow you to set up a unit in a location other than the battlefield as a reserve unit. A unit that is added to your army once the battle is underway is called a summoned unit.

When you set up a reserve unit, either during deployment or once the battle is underway, you must tell your opponent that the unit is in reserve and keep it to one side instead of placing it on the battlefield. At the start of the fourth battle round, units that are still in reserve are destroyed. Units cannot cast spells or use abilities while they are in reserve unless the spell or ability specifically says it can be used by reserve units.

Reserve units are picked as part of your army before the battle begins, while summoned units are units added to your army once the battle is underway. Models that have been removed from play can be used as part of a summoned unit.

17.1.1 Cover
A target unit is in cover if all of the models in the unit are wholly on a terrain feature or behind a terrain feature. Add 1 to save rolls for attacks that target a unit that is in cover. A unit that has a Wounds characteristic of 10 or more or that has made a charge move in the same turn does not receive the benefit of being in cover.
